Amazon’s Alexa-powered Echo Show is arguably one of the best pieces of hardware that the company has managed to put together in the time it has been taking over the living room. Now, that much sought-after Echo Show has been heavily reduced in price thanks to a hefty $100 Amazon reduction.

First and foremost, Amazon’s Echo Show is built with the same wonderful Alexa integration which has made other hardware such as the Echo and Echo Dot extremely popular not only in the United States but also on a global scale. That Alexa integration means that any Show owner will be able to instantly use voice control to give instructions to the Show as well as ask questions and control hardware within the home that offers Alexa compatibility. The main difference here is that this hardware comes with a larger footprint and the addition of a screen for new media types to be shown.

From a functionality perspective, Show allows owners to call almost anyone hands-free or make instant video calls to other friends and family members who are in ownership of other Echo hardware. It’s also possible to use the Show to connect to other Echo devices throughout the home. One of the great things about the Show is that it offers the same underlying functionality as the rest of Amazon’s range but with the addition of new features that make use of the screen on the device. It’s possible to see lyrics on the screen through Amazon Music as well as play music through other services such as Pandora, Spotify, and iHeartRadio.

It’s also a beautiful piece of hardware in terms of the speaker quality and the audio output. In fact, if you chained two of these things together – which is entirely feasible at this price – then you could fill your room with stunning audio and music lyrics on-demand. There is also the wonderful ability for it to connect to various home automation hardware to control things like thermostats, light bulbs, and even connected switches within the home. It has eight microphones, beam-forming technology, and even noise cancellation technology built directly into it, and it’s all yours with an amazing $100 discount applied.
